Ever had the sick feeling that you've lost something of great value? That happened not too long ago for my friend, Jill. Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.
Some NFL tickets that Jill’s husband had ordered for a guy’s weekend away had disappeared. Jill frantically searched through piles of bills and papers and looked through drawers and cabinets but came up with NOTHING! She was so upset.
However, as Jill searched she couldn’t help but think, “Wow, I'm so valuable to God that if I were lost, He would turn everything upside down in order to find ME.” She knew the tickets were nothing compared to a person’s eternal life...but this was a little taste of what Jesus talked about in the story of the woman who lost her coin and wouldn't rest until she found it or the shepherd who left the 99 to find the one lost sheep.
Isn't it cool when God uses a frustrating situation as a little aha moment? Learn more about your value in God’s eyes at proverbs31.org!
